About this item
The Rwandan genocide itself may have been confined to around 100 days in the spring and summer of 1994, but its emotional and familial aftereffects lingered, persisted and continued to shape lives far into the early years of the early 21st century. On a judicial level, the country spent the years following the genocide legally contending with this tortured history, via war crimes cases held in a system of courts known as gacaca. This particular documentary program hones in on one genocidal survivor, a Rwandan woman whose husband and children were brutally murdered by one of the perpetrators of the massacre. It witnesses her difficult confrontation in gacaca with the man she formally accuses of ruining her life; when she succeeds in bringing him to justice, it imbues the rest of her fellow villagers with the courage necessary to face their own genocidal experiences for the very first time. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide.
